Auction of homes
brings local bargains
MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer

A two-bedroom, two-
bath villa in On Top of the
World went for $25,000
during a foreclosure auc-
tion last week in Ocala.
Auctioneers from
REDC, Real Estate Dispo-
sition Corporation, auc-
tioned off 86 homes in
Marion, Citrus, Levy,
Sumter and Hernando
counties as part of their
six-day tour in Florida.
Overall, 1,500 foreclosures
were auctioned in Fort
Myers, Orlando, Miami-
Fort Lauderdale, Tampa,
Jacksonville, Melbourne,
and Sarasota.
Priscilla Phipps was one
of the 150 people attend-
ing the auction at the
Ocala Hilton. When she
moved to Ocala in 2006
from Mississippi she
wanted to live in Fore
Ranch. Townhouses at
that time were running be-
tween $140,000 to $150,000.
At the auction there were
two Fore Ranch town-
houses sold, one went for
$37,500 and the other
$47,500.
Phipps, like many oth-
ers, came to see what the
auction was all about. She
has a dream of investing
in real estate one day so
was there to see what she
can learn.
"I was blown away," she
admitted. "Everything was
happening so fast."
Typically, 25 to 30 homes
are auctioned per hour -a
fast but manageable pace
for buyers, said Rick Wein-
berg, vice-president of
public relations.
Phipps wasn't the only
one attending a real estate
auction for the first time.
When the questioned was
posed to the audience,
more than 50 percent
raised their hands indicat-
ing they were at their first
auction.
Others in the audience
were investors.
Sheila Noel, of Willis-
ton, was hoping to buy her
second piece of property

wandered through the crowd
and posed with Eula Cleary

Sales tax


holiday


arrives

The following is a release from
the Florida Dept. ofRevenue con-
cerning the three-day sales tax ex-
emption for school supplies this
week (but that doesn't mean you
have to be going to school to take
advantage).
Florida law directs that no sales
tax or local option taxes (also
known as discretionary sales sur-
tax) will be collected on sales of
books, clothing,
footwear, and cer- List of
tain accessories items,
selling for $50 or e
less, or on certain Page 2
school supplies
selling for $10 or less. This three-
day tax exemption is in effect from
12:01 a.m., Friday, Aug. 13, through
midnight, Sunday, Aug. 15.
The sales tax exemption applies
to each eligible book or item of
clothing selling for $50 or less and
to each eligible school supply item
selling for $10 or less. The exemp-
tion will still apply no matter how
many items are sold on the same
invoice to a customer
However, the exemption does
not apply to books or to any item of
clothing selling for more than $50,
or to any school supply item sell-
ing for more than $10.

cals, or audio books. Books are

GOP county hopefuls discuss qualifications


JIM CLARK
Editor


Republican candidates for the
Marion County Commission Dis-
trict 2 seat being vacated by Jim
Payton brought their campaigns to
the State Road 200 Coalition Mon-
day afternoon.


The five GOP candidates will be
on the Aug. 24 ballot and include
Kathy Bryant, Christine
Dobkowski, Tony Mendola, Elicia
Sanders and Les Smith. The win-
ner of the Republican primary
will face Democrat Kenneth
Nadeau and Florida Whig Party
member Douglas Shearer in the


general election on Nov 2.
Before a large crowd at Timber-
Ridge, the five hopefuls told the
audience why they should be the
one chosen to advance to the fi-
nals.
Bryant was the first speaker in
the alphabetical list, and started
with one word: "Enough."


She said she was the "common
sense conservative Republican,
and a wife, mother and business-
woman, not a politician."
She is a licensed real estate
agent but said she is not active in
the field, having only two closings

However, "clothing" does
not include watches,

sporting equipment. A rep-
resentative list of items is
included.
"School supplies" means
pens, pencils, erasers,

tainment complex, public
lodging establishment, or
airport.
The total price of items
advertised as "buy one, get
one free," or "buy one, get
one for a reduced price,"
cannot be averaged in
order for both items to
qualify for the exemption.
The sale of a gift certifi-
cate is not taxable. Eligible
items purchased during
the exemption period
using a gift certificate will

A gift certificate cannot be
used to reduce the selling
price of a book or an item
of clothing to $50 or less, or
the price of a school supply
item to $10 or less, in order
for the item to qualify for
the tax exemption.
Manufacturers' coupons
do not reduce the sales
price of an item.
Therefore, a manufac-
turer's coupon cannot be
used to reduce the selling
price of a book or an item
of clothing to $50 or less, or
that of a school supply item
to $10 or less, in order to
qualify for the exemption.
Store coupons and dis-
counts reduce the sales
price of an item.
Therefore, a store
coupon or discount can be
used to reduce the sales
price of a book or an item
of clothing to $50 or less, or
that of a school supply item
to $10 or less, in order to
qualify for the exemption.
Rebates occur after the
sale and do not affect the
sales price of an item pur-
chased.
Repairs to tax-exempt
items do not qualify for the
exemption. Alterations to
clothing are treated like re-
pairs and do not qualify for
the tax exemption, even
though alterations may be
completed, invoiced, and
paid for at the same time as
the tax-exempt item to be
altered.


AUCTION
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

from REDC. Earlier this
year, she was the successful
bidder on an on-line auc-
tion. Now, she was inter-
ested in two pieces of
property in the Morriston
area.
Noel bought her first in-
vestment piece of real es-
tate which had been used
as a grow house and
needed lots of fix-up with
some of her 401K money
after realizing the stock
market wasn't doing much
for her bottom line.
She offered advice to
those new to the auction
way of buying.
Noel said potential buy-
ers should do their home-
work before bidding by
going online to check out
what the value of the prop-
erty is in today's market.
"Don't get caught up in
the frenzy of wanting to win
the bid. Set your price and
don't go over it," she said.
Cindy and her husband,
Don, went home without a
new home when the 3,374-
square-foot, four-bedroom,
four-bath home, previously
valued at $360,000 went for
$120,000 more than they
were willing to pay
They had come to the
auction in hopes of buying
a new primary home.
Others fared better.
Auctioneer Wayne Wheat


said the words "sold" many
times over the evening as a
house in Rainbow Lakes
was purchased for $75,000;
a 3/2, 1,252-square-foot
house in Belleview for
$47,500; a lot in Lake Dia-
mond for $5,000; a duplex
on Northwest 57th Court
for $42,500; a condo on
Northeast 19th Place for
$16,500; a 3/2, 1,200-square-
foot home in Fort McCoy
for $40,000 and a 3/2 ce-
ment block house on
Southwest 41st Street Road
for $15,000.
Overall, 40 homes sold
during the evening for $2.2
million.
Listening to the prices
the different homes were
going for made Noel think
of her days in Kentucky.
"These prices wouldn't
buy you a thoroughbred,"
she joked.
For those making last
week's auction all is not
lost.
Some transactions may
fall through and in those
situations, the properties
are made available
through REDC's website,
Auction.com.
Weinberg predicts there
will other auctions by
REDC in Ocala, although
none are scheduled yet.
"We're pleased with the
results from the auction.
First-time homeowners
and investors walked away
with some incredible bar-
gains," said Jeff Frieden,


CEO of REDC. He also
pointed out that when a
foreclosure is sold, it is
helping the local economy
because a new family is
paying a mortgage, prop-


erty taxes, gas, electric and
water bills, and they're cre-
ating jobs by hiring land-
scapers, painters and
electricians, which in turn
fuels the economy

COUNTY
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1


in the past couple of years, and
those were with friends who
sought her help. She said she
was the "candidate with the busi-
ness experience to solve the
tough issues facing or commu-
nity today"
Starting a theme that echoed
with all the candidates, the life-
long county resident pointed to
the economy and the unemploy-
ment rate. She said she wanted
to ease the restrictions on small
businesses, and would have the
backbone to make "tough, tough
choices."
"It's time for prioritization and
for us to live within our means."
She said she wanted a decision
on the landfill. "We've been kick-
ing the can on this for a long, long
time. It's not fair to you to have
this issue come up each election
cycle."
She closed with a Ronald Rea-
gan-type quote: "Government is
not the solution, government is
the problem."
Bryant is married with four
children.
Christine Dobkowski is from
Belleview and has experience
with her husband in small busi-
ness. She worked her way
through the Belleview code com-
mittee and planning and zoning
board, then ran for the city coun-
cil, beating a 22-year incumbent.
Later she says she "defeated a
woman totally funded by devel-
opers" who didn't like the way
she had voted against them.
She said she attends most
county meetings and is an alter-
nate member of the Transporta-
tion Planning Organization
board.
She said that the current com-
mission is "not living up to my


expectations."
She cited her legislative expe-
rience: "this is not an entry level
job." She also said she has a
proven conservative voting
record.
Tony Mendola says he has
"never been a politically-ori-
ented person. He moved to the
area in 1978 with his parents and
graduated from Forest High
School.
"My life experience brought
me to this point," he said.
He has experience working for
the property appraiser's office,
but said advancement wasn't
based "on how hard one worked
but on how long you had been
there." The Air Force veteran
went into the ministry, and is
also a real estate broker.
He noted that the commission,
a board of five people, is "a job
that takes a person who can ar-
ticulate a thought and build a
consensus."
He also said he wants to
strengthen law enforcement.
"What good are parks if you're
afraid to go out of your house?"
Echoing the sentiment of other
candidates, he said "The role of
government is to get out of the
way."
Elicia Sanders, whose hus-
band is a custom home builder,
said her platform had three basic
planks. She said the most impor-
tant issue is economic: "We must
create jobs." She also pointed
the need for safe neighborhoods
and strong schools. She said jobs
that are created need to be the
type that provide careers for em-
ployees.
She said the government must
control finances. "We must stop
any form of runaway spending,"


and added that "Sweetheart
deals" must be abolished. "We
will balance the budget."
Third, she said that protecting
the quality of life was vital. "We
must never sacrifice the quality
of health care," and, noting
nearby SR 200, "we have to im-
prove traffic."
Les Smith brought a copy of
the budget and said that "kept
him fired up." He wants the
county out of the landfill busi-
ness. "Let some private company
come in and run it."
He echoed the importance of
jobs, and also added, "If you cut
the spending you're going to
have money in your pocket."
He said that the county "needs
a county commissioner who has
his own personal finances in
order. He said he has had only
one new truck over the years,
and one credit card since 1968,
"with no late payments."
He said he builds homes and
apartments in Marion County,
and "I borrow money to make
money" He said he didn't pay the
qualifying fee, but went around
to the public to get petitions
signed. "I met a lot of interesting
people."
He also said that "all money
his campaign has spent has been
in Marion County
"This isn't a beauty or popular-
ity contest."
After each candidate spoke,
the floor was open for questions.
One of the first concerned the
possibility of a tax by Munroe
Regional Medical Center, and all
candidates said they would not
support a property tax.
Candidates were asked about
land that was grandfathered in
as platted from years ago, and


agreed there was nothing they
could do. Property rights were a
favorite of all, but all agreed that
the county had the right to go
against any new developments.
Asked about the salary, all said
they would give something back
Smith originally said he would
only accept 1/3 of the amount, but


it was noted that the state sets
the salary and the commission-
ers could then donate some of it
if they wished.
The next coalition meeting
will be Sept. 13, and will feature
candidates who will be on the
ballot in November, including
primary winners.


House-sitter arrested
A local woman who was a house-sitter for some neighbors was ac-
cused of grand theft, dealing in stolen property and violation of the
pawn broker's act after she allegedly took items from the neighbors'
home.
The couple were on vacation and, when they returned, discovered
various items missing, including a gold rope chain, pendant and the
woman's wedding band.
Arrested was Christine L. Archer, 39, of Southwest 60th Terrace,
Cherrywood Estates, Ocala. She allegedly pawned the items at Value
Pawn Shop. She faces two counts of
each of the charges, for a total of six COP
counts, with a total bond of $16,000.
An Ocala man was arrested for no
valid driver's license and giving false in-
formation to a law enforcement officer after he was stopped for driv-
ing suspiciously in a mobile home park.
According to the report, Jose D. Popoca-Santos, 21, of Southwest
30th Street gave a deputy a false name and date of birth when he
was asked for identification.
Joseph Michael Syracusa, 42, of Southwest 58th Street, was ar-
rested for DUI after being stopped in a vehicle with a New York tag
for having no tag light. After his arrest his breath alcohol was meas-
ured at 0.171 and 0.160.
Kayla A Nunn, 23, of Northeast 52nd Street, was accused of DUI
after being stopped for traveling 73 mph in a 45 mph zone on South-
west 80th Avenue. She was also being investigated by Ocala Police
for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
On Thursday, Aug. 5, agents from the Multi-Agency Drug Enforce-
ment Team (MADET) arrested 47-year-old Wayne Chiaverini for sell-
ing marijuana from his workplace, Sportsman's Lodge and Store, in
Salt Springs.
In March of 2010, Chiaverini was arrested for possession with in-
tent to distribute after agents investigated Chiaverini for selling
marijuana out of his home. On Thursday, agents went back to the
Sportsman's Lodge; this time, to arrest Chiaverini. When they ar-
rived, agents found 24 grams of marijuana, packaged for sale,
thrown in a garbage can behind the store.

OPINION


CITIZEN

E D I TO R I A L


20-minute rotation?
Last week we published a story about undercover
deputies being attacked by a couple of panhandlers.

One of the things that stood out on the report was the fact
that the suspects told the deputies, who were not easily
identifiable, that they'd have to wait their turn because the
panhandlers, on State Road 200 near County Road 484,
were on a 20-minute rotation.
A 20-minute rotation? Wait their turn? What is this, the
Ocala Union of Panhandlers, Inc.?
Everyone wants to help people who are down and out, es-
pecially those who are in that condition through no fault of
their own. But you can't help but think that the words and
actions of the two men arrested a couple of weeks ago will
work against the panhandlers here in the Corridor area.
Many of those living in this area want to see these people
go away. They don't want to be accosted on their way to the
stores and/or restaurants. But the courts have made it hard
to get rid of the panhandlers, although it isn't against the
law to jail them when they start getting into fights with each
other to protect their turf. And that's apparently what they
thought they were doing when they attacked the new guy
on the block who wasn't "waiting his turn."
There are many dedicated people working with social
service agencies to provide help to individuals who need
it, and we hope some of these people would avail them-
selves of those services, and not either create problems or
fall victim to others on the street corners.
The public does have to remember that not all the pan-
handlers are guilty of assault. Some may be truly down and
out and needing help. How you decide whether to donate is
up to you.
We also hope law enforcement continues its efforts to
clean this mess up. The recent arrests had a noticeable ef-
fect on the number of panhandlers. Let's hope the trend
continues that way.

Early voting? I'll pass,


Jim
Clark

Early voting for the primary
started this week. It is now
possible for you to go to cer-
tain sites and cast your ballot early
I've never liked that idea, and I'll
still resist it and wait until Election
Day to go to the polls.
There are a couple of reasons
why I don't like early voting:
1. When it comes to politics, I'm a
skeptic. No one has ever shown me
that all elections are on the up-and-
up. And it seems to me that fraud
would be a lot easier when the elec-
tion is spread out over 15 days. I'm
not accusing the candidates, mind
you. But I am suspicious of the spe-
cial interests that want to control
everything in our lives. I feel they
will stop at nothing to gain the
upper hand, and that includes rig-

L ET T E R
Double dipping
There was a time when a double
dip was two scoops of drippy ice
cream on a sugar cone.
At the moment double-dip means
a backward slide of the nation's
production of goods and services
after a short period of growth in
other words a recession followed
by a recession. It happened in 1937,
a recession within the Great De-
pression (1929-1941).
A few pessimistic economists
keep mentioning the possibility of
a double dip in our present eco-
nomic malaise. Washington and
Wall Street say they're still opti-
mistic and why not? They're the
folks with jobs, perks, pensions,
benefits, bailouts, boats, and
bonuses.


going elections. Incidentally, when I
mention this, I'm not necessarily
picking on our election people.
Early voting has "caught on" all
over the country
2. The second reason is more
practical. Alot can happen in those
15 days between the start of early
voting and the actually Election
Day
Suppose the candidate you voted
for suddenly does something stu-
pid, or makes some dumb state-
ment, one that alienates everybody
Or suppose your favorite candidate
is accused of cheating, or a crime
not related to the election. Guess
what! You can't go back and change
your vote.
I personally want to take every-
thing into account before I make up
my mind. At the moment, I'm unde-
cided in a lot of primaries, and I
probably won't make up my mind
until after I hear everything the
candidates have to say right up to
the election on Aug. 24, or at least
until the last day of early voting on
the 21st.
So that's why I think early voting
is a bad idea for the most part. I can
see it for people who will be gone
on Aug. 24. It's a good way to get
your vote in. But we always had that


thank you
ability via absentee ballots.
So even with that in mind, here's
the information on early voting, for
those who so desire:

Politicians and money manipula-

thousands of jobs which left the
U.S. over the past 20 years aren't

of dollars of stimulus money was
used to re-inflate the stock market,
save government jobs, and buy
votes. Very little dribbled down to
tapped-out consumers and small
businesses.
For 30 years Washington has
been on a spending orgy. To sweep
aside any concerns and suspicions
of voters, several administrations

income they might never earn, and
spend inflated home equity, which
disappeared when the real estate

Our situation resembles the
Japanese "lost decade." Their stock
market bubble hit 38,951 in 1989
and bottomed at 6,994 in 2008. As
the Japanese have learned, a lost
decade can last 20 years or more, if
that's how long it takes to squeeze
all the hot air out of years of finan-
cial fantasy.
For the first time in decades, U.S.
consumers are spending less and
saving more. They sense we could
be adrift in a financial funk for a
long-lost decade. Unfortunately
we're still at the mercy of the dipsy-
doodle politicians in Washington
and the money changers on Wall
Street. Buying a piggy bank for
loose change ain't such a bad idea.

RIGHT DOWN THE CORRIDOR


President Obama's favored treatment of illegals


- ^ Robert E.
Beckner
On July 28, three days
before my column of
July 30 was pub-
lished outlining what some
individuals are discussing
as to what our president
wants, which is to be our
"dictator," Judge Susan R.
Bolton blocked key parts of
Arizona's new immigration
law. This was just what the
president wanted, to delay
any movement on immi-
grants or the closing of the
border. Delay, delay at
present.
Harry Reid, Senate Ma-
jority Leader, and Nancy
Pelosi, Speaker of the
House, had been facing a
dilemma; they did not want
vulnerable Democrats to
vote on any amnesty bill
this close to the November
elections, especially not
with unemployment at 9.5
percent. So they let the
president lead at this point
and the two of them and
the president have just
kept quiet.
He knew that four high
level attorneys in the Im-
migration Services office
of the Homeland Security
Department were writing
up a very detailed memo
setting out a back door or
end run type of amnesty
plan for illegals in the ab-
sence of comprehensive
immigration reform. The
authors of the plan were


political appointees,
Denise Vanison, Roxana
Bacon and two career em-
ployees of VSCIS Director
Alejandro Mayorkas, an-
other political appointee.
The memo titled "Adminis-
trative Alternatives to
Comprehensive Immigra-
tion" is 11 pages long. The
draft memo was leaked by
a whistle blower and out-
lines ways the administra-
tion was exploring to
legalize swaths of illegal
immigrants into the United
States. It described how to
reduce the threat of re-
moval for certain individu-
als present in the U.S.
without authorization.
This memo was a viola-
tion of separation of pow-
ers between the Executive
Branch and Congress. It is
arrogance run amok.
There were rumors as far
back as May or even fur-
ther of something that was
up the way Pelosi, Reid
and the president were all
being so quiet on the immi-
gration and border control
problems. Senator Chuck
Grassley (R-Iowa) was the
first to obtain an actual
copy of the memo on July
29, and I was fortunate
enough to receive my copy
on the 30th. So it was not a
rumor any more, it's here
in black and white. We
learned that on May 11, the
Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee, under questioning by
Senator Cornyn, had Mr.
Majorkas testifying, who
first said he was unaware
of discussions to use the
various kinds of tools in a
memo on a categorical
basis. Then later, he had to
clarify and admit that offi-
cials had talked about ex-
panding the use of the
following three examples


of the outrageous propos-
als in the memo. First,
USCIS could grant "parole-
in-place," which comes
with a work permit and the
ability to obtain a green
card to certain classes of
aliens who entered the
country illegally That is a
nice reward for those who
successfully violated the
law for the longest period
of time.
Then we have the "de-
ferred action" for those
who overstay their visas.
This means that deporta-
tion is deferred "indefi-
nitely" and the illegal alien
can apply for a work per-
mit. There are two cate-
gories of illegal aliens for
these deferred actions.
Those who might benefit if
Congress were to pass the
long sought DREAM act
amnesty, (of which there
are 2.1 million according to
the Migration Policy Insti-
tute) and those who have
resided in the U.S. since
1996 or as of a different
date to move forward the
registry provision now lim-
ited to entries before Jan.
1, 1972. The "Registry Pro-
vision" is an actual federal
law, not that it matters to
the memo's authors.
One more action that
could be taken by the pres-
ident, to make sure no ille-
gal alien is left behind is
the suggestion that the De-
partment of Homeland Se-
curity (DHS) could simply
stop issuing "notices to ap-
pear," which are the docu-
ments that start the
removal process for illegal
aliens, unless the alien has
a "significant negative im-
migration or criminal his-
tory" Apparently, violation
of immigration law once or
twice is acceptable, these

What's bad about middle age is growing out of it.


individuals would not be
able to apply for work per-
mits, but since the admin-
istration isn't conducting
worksite enforcement any-
more, this shouldn't matter.
The writers had to know
that the Constitution gives
only Congress the author-
ity to decide federal immi-
gration law and yet they
went right ahead to find
ways to ensure that a ma-
jority of the illegal aliens in
the U.S. are allowed to re-
main. Senator Grassley
wrote to the president in
June asking if such a memo
was being considered and
so far no answer. He then
wrote to the Homeland Se-
curity Department asking
for information and again
no answer, now it's into Au-
gust.
It's so clear again, the
president doesn't care


what the country wants, he
simply wants to advance
his own Socialist agenda.
In this case it's his quest to
ensure his re-election and
a Democrat majority that
knows no limits. This plus
the possibility of his "exec-
utive order" for amnesty
for all illegal aliens, he is
clearly looking for ways to
bypass Congress and to
grant "amnesty" himself.
He has already shown he
doesn't care that Ameri-
cans do not want amnesty
but like his other legisla-
tion the country does not
want, he goes right ahead
and those politicians we
"put in office" support
whatever he wants. They
have all got to go in this
November election. Per-
haps good news will be
coming soon, as a hearing
on Florida's and 20 other


states suit to stop the gov-
ernment from forcing each
and every one of us to pur-
chase insurance under the
commerce clause of the
Constitution will have a
hearing this Friday The
state of Virginia's separate
law suit on the same chal-
lenge was heard yesterday
and the Judge agreed with
Virginia's position and al-
lowed their suit to pro-
ceed. The Florida Judge's
decision will not come out
until after the election

PEOPLE FIRST


E very statement
made in this article
can quite easily be
checked online or prefer-
ably at snopes.com. Our
government has left us be-
hind while they dance with
the devils. If vulgarity was
allowed it would be nice to
tell them to leave on the
horse they came in on.
We're now adrift. Globally
adrift, so to speak Time for
a cruise? Exxon Mobil
made billions in profits,
and yet paid not one dime
in federal income taxes in
2009. The 2005 energy bill
had a little known provi-
sion, commonly called the
Halliburton Loophole,
which exempted natural
gas drilling from the Clean
Water Act. The result?
Water so contaminated
that you could set it on fire.
Massey Energy was cited
more than 2,400 times for
safety violations in its
mines, but chose not to fix
potentially lethal problems
because low penalties
meant it was cheaper to
simply keep paying the
fines. This spring, 29 min-
ers were killed in an un-
derground explosion at a
Massey mine in West Vir-
ginia. Massey, the region's
largest coal producer, was
cited for federal safety vio-
lations at the mine on the
day of the blast. The mine
covers several square
miles and the area affected
by the explosion is esti-
mated to be about 12,000
feet in length. None of the


miners had time to put on
their masks, Kevin Strick-
lin, administrator of the
Mine Safety and Health
Administration said at the
news conference near the
mine.
Michael Taylor was the
FDA official who approved
the use of Monsanto's
Bovine Growth Hormone
in dairy cows (even though
it's banned in most coun-
tries and linked to cancer.)
After approving it, he left
the FDA to work for
Monsanto, until last year,
when he moved back to the
government as Presi-
dent Obama's "Food Safety
Czar." Internal Toyota doc-
uments outline how the
company was successful in
limiting regulators actions
in the recalls last year -
saving hundreds of mil-
lions while the death toll
continued to climb.
GE and its lobbyists -
including 33 former gov-
ernment employees -
have successfully lobbied
Congress to override De-
fense Department requests
to cancel a GE contract to
work on a new engine for
the Joint Strike Fighter jet.
GE will need $2.9 billion to
finish the project. Con-
gress, albeit reluctantly,
was responsible for the
override write your rep-
resentative and tell them
that we the people can no
longer afford to pay their
lobbyists.
Top executives at nine
big banks, including
Citibank, Bank ofAmerica,
Goldman Sachs, and Mor-
gan Stanley, paid them-
selves more than $20
billion in bonuses just
weeks after taxpayers
bailed them out to the tune
of $700 billion. The stun-
ning aspect of this horren-
dous and soul-breaking
greed is that it doesn't
shame them one whit.
During the waning days
of the Bush administration,
officials responded to a
long-term lobbying cam-
paign by pre-empting prod-
uct liability lawsuits for


dozens of entire industries.
They bypassed Congress
entirely and rewrote rules
ranging from seatbelt man-
ufacturing regulations to
prescription drug safety
And did we the people
complain? Don't be naive.
The populace is too busy
chasing straw men tea
parties, birthers and the
huge problem of gay mar-
riage, homosexuality and
the bedroom police as
their "whips" look on with
glee and satisfaction.
In the interest of profits,
sunscreen manufacturers
including Johnson and
Johnson and Schering-
Plough opposed an FDA
proposal requiring full re-
porting on sunscreen la-
bels. The New York Times
just confirmed that current
SPF ratings don't even
measure sun rays that
cause cancer. Does any-
body care?
BP, now you've no doubt
been following their ex-
ploits is a company with a
record of 760 drilling safety
and environmental viola-
tions and was granted
safety waivers in order to
operate the deepwater
drilling rig that ultimately
created the worst environ-
mental disaster in U.S. his-
tory And now they want to
start again immediately
Does anyone think the
above will make the peo-
ple's blood boil? Perhaps a
few, but most will be busy
hunting down "socialists"
and "fascists" and the pres-
ident's real reason behind
his election. The trouble is,
the poppycock believed by
far too many, allows the
real gargantuan sleight of
hand to continue un-
abated.
C.S. Lewis, a forceful
writer who made the dis-

LETTERS


TO THE EDITOR


Checking sources
To Wendy Binnie, I am
glad you decided that I
should check my sources. So
I decided to do that.
Let's take a trip down
memory lane.
It's now 1969, the date Aug.
20 and the time around 11:30
p.m. I'm awakened by a
phone call. A voice informs
me that a bomb had gone off
at the place where I worked,
Marine Midland Bank of
New York. All officers were
to report first thing in the
morning.
The 8th floor had been
decimated by an explosion.
Later it was determined that
the explosion was equal to 25
sticks of dynamite. Strangely,
the phone warning that a
bomb would go off on the 8th
floor at around 10:30 p.m.
was called into our Hanover
Square building instead of
the 140 Broadway offices
where the bomb was planted.
In addition we later find out
that the bombers thought the


8th floor was empty. Unfortu-
nately they were wrong
again. We had a night staff of
over 20 people working
there. The reason the bomb,
which blew a hole five feet
wide through six feet of con-
crete to the 7th floor, didn't
kill everyone on the floor was
because the building was one
of the first all glass structures
built in Manhattan. The blast
and the concussion blew out
all the glass walls. Had it
been an old fashioned brick
and mortar structure, the
concussion would have
killed everyone on that floor.
Instead many incurred seri-
ous injuries some of which
were permanent. Eventually
two terrorists were identi-
fied, Sam Melville and Jane
Lauren Alpert. Melville was
captured and sent to prison
and Alpert popped out be-
hind a rock and surrendered
many years later. She was
portrayed by your media as a
nice housewife who had a
couple of children and was
now reformed. What she re-

ally had morphed into was a
radical feminist. She got a
slap on the wrist for a couple
of years and is back doing
her thing.
Now the reason I wanted
to tell you this story was be-
cause I knew years before
the voice of Glen Beck ever
hit the airwaves just who
these radicals are and how
many of them today hide be-
hind the euphemism called
Progressives. It's just an-
other word for committed
Communist. They want to de-
stroy our "Imperialist Na-
tion" from within since the
radical left finally admitted
that blowing up buildings
was not a good idea.
Now, communism has pro-
duced such wonderful peo-
ple such as Lenin and Stalin
who killed at least 15 million
of their own people. In fact it
is now believed they outdid
Hitler. Wherever commu-
nism has festered, dictator-
ship has followed. Now, dear
lady, why not just admit you
are a communist and stop

with this Progressive non-
sense.
Finally, I have no idea
what you were doing in the
60s, I could only guess. But
for you to imply that no one
knew who these converted
radicals were until Beck
came on the scene is pure
nonsense. I have watched
these so-called Progressives
like Bill Ayres and his wife
Bernadette Dom for decades
including your hero, Barack
Hussein Obama.
No, I will not be misled by
the likes of you, nor will the
God fearing and loyal Ameri-
cans who were fooled two
years ago. As the old saying
goes, "Fool me once shame
on you, fool me twice shame
on me."
Beware. A reckoning is
coming!

lowed operations that are not
so well regulated. These ex-
pensive fast machines run
very expensive software that
allows them to monitor the
activity of the traditional
trades being conducted on
the network. When these
monitor machines detect the
start of a large volume pur-
chase of a particular stock
they can automatically, with-
out human help, issue a buy
order on that stock. The ma-
chines continue to monitor
the stock's price and when it
increases by some preset
amount, they can automati-
cally generate a sell order on
the stock they just pur-
chased. The machine has
then made a small profit
from the small change in the
stock's price. It can complete
a buy or sell orders in about 5
milliseconds, that's 0.005 sec-
onds. With their high speed
orders and automated
buy/sell decisions, these ma-
chines may complete more
than one profit cycle on a
given stock trade.
This process is described as
'high frequency trading' on


Wall Street and it's estimated
that only 300 firms out of the
20,000 thattrade securities are
using it However their activi-
ties account for some 73 per-
cent of a typical daily trading
volume of some 29 billion
shares in all of the exchanges.
Exact profits from these
trades are unknown but it was
estimated at $21 billion in the
U.S. in 2008. The high fre-
quency technique is also being
used in other large exchanges
around the world. No govern-
ment agency or any of the
stock exchanges have shown
concern over these high fre-
quency operations even
though the markets suffered
an unexplained $1 trillion mo-
mentary dip in value on May 6
of this year. The cause is un-
known.
This taking of unearned
profits from the traditional
trades of securities reduces
the capital that industries
should receive, deprives in-
vestors of their gains and
places a large amount of
money in a few hands rather
than a small amount in the
many hands that we need to
drive our economy This is
not the capitalism that made
us who we are. But neither of
our political parties dare
touch these geese that lay the
golden eggs to finance their
election campaigns. The pri-
mary is Aug. 24 and the gen-
eral election is Nov. 2.

Tales from the east side of Ocala and Marion County


r Dick
Frank


PUN


In addition to all the
horse farms, the Ocala
area has many other
beautiful scenic surround-
ings. One of them starts at
the golf course on East Sil-
ver Springs Boulevard and
extends way into the na-



. Mimi's
' Apparel and


tional forest. This whole
area is alive with interest-
ing tales.
A medium in the median
At one time a midget psy-
chic set up several pup
tents in the wide center is-
land of the Boulevard and
proceeded to do business.
Her size allowed her to
easily run her business in
the pup tent. Customers
liked her because her for-
tune telling was always in
tents.
A skeptic intended to ex-
pose her as a fraud. After
he sat down, the psychic
gazed into her crystal ball
and began smiling from ear
to ear. Presuming her grin
stemmed from her smug
satisfaction at fooling an-
other customer, he rose an-
grily and walloped her. He

was later charged with

During their investiga-
tion the police found out
she was operating illegally
and put her in the old
Ocala jail. Since she was so
small she was able to
squeeze between the bars
of her cell and escape. The
police bulletin read,
"Wanted: Small Medium at
Large."
Smash hit
There had been a rustic
theatre in the same place
where the Ocala Civic The-
atre now stands. One of
their first shows was enti-
tled, "Punnery." It was, of
course, a play on words.
During a variety show a

the damaged area until
Freddy, juggling bowling
pins, accidentally stepped
through the hole up to his
knees. He apologized to
the audience for his clum-
siness. But a heckler
shouted, "Don't worry,
Freddy! It's just a stage
you're going through!"
Fair game
At the sheriff's station in
the forest, Bubba ex-
plained why his cousin
shot him. "Well," Bubba
began, "We wuz havin' a
good time drinking, when
my cousin Ray picked up
his shotgun and said, 'Hey,
der ya fellows, wanna go
hunting?'"
'And then what hap-
pened?" the officer inter-
rupted.
"From what I remem-


ber," Bubba said, "I stood
up and said, 'Sure, I'm
game.'"
For the birds
A hiker in the forest
came upon a baby bald
eagle that had fallen from
the nest. He gently placed
the weak baby bird on a
nearby branch and went on
his way A forest ranger
tracked him down later
and charged him with "ill
eagle in tree."
Bear with it
When three hikers got
back to their truck, they
saw it surrounded by three
bears.
"OK guys, I figure the
only way to get to the truck
is to get these bears really
angry Then they'll leave
and we can go home. So,
Ed, you take the one little


brown club, and I'll take
the little black cub, and
Joe, you take the huge sil-
vertip mama grizzly bear."
"Hey, man wait a sec, I'm
supposed to get this mon-
ster angry, and you guys get
the cubs? That's not fair!"
"Now, now, Joe. We all
have our bears to cross."
Mechanical marvel
A man who lived near
Moss Bluff boasted about
making a new kind of car.
He took the engine from a
Ford, the transmission
from a Cadillac, tires from
a Honda, and the exhaust
system from a Dodge.
Everyone wondered what
he would get. It turned out
to be fifteen years.

Well, Blow Me Down!
At the end of the day at
Six Gun Territory the
ticket taker was in her
booth watching the ex-
tremely strong wind out-
side. One of the workers
who was sweeping up de-
bris in the parking lot was a
very small lightweight
woman.
She was having a rough
time trying to not be blown
away When she came into
the ticket booth for a break,
the ticket taker told her
that she would have to put
heavy rocks in her shoes
when she back outside.


The sweeper lady lisped,
"You mean, now I weigh
me down to sweep?"
Special Nut
A man at a local golf
course invented a new put-
ter that allows a player to
adjust the head on the club
to any angle, thus saving
the need to carry a bagful
of clubs.
The adjustable head is
attached by a special nut in
the shape of a "B" know as
a "bee nut." The putter,
being especially good for
getting out of sand traps,
has become know as the
"bee-nut putter sand-
wedge".

Gardening to be focus of expo


BY MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer
For those who are unsure about
just what vegetable plants grow in
the cooler months, the answers can
be found during the Vegetable Gar-
den Expo, Aug 21.
The annual event is held in coop-
eration with the University of
Florida IFAS, the Marion County Ex-
tension Service and Marion County
Master Gardeners at the extension
service office, 2232 N.E. Jacksonville
Road.
Growing vegetables in cooler
weather is one of 10 different sub-
jects talked about during the 9 a.m.


to 1 p.m. event. Other topics include
information on how to enhance your
garden soil, gardening with children,
and using the best management
practices in the garden.
Outside master gardeners will
offer the opportunity to learn about
composting, growing herbs, control-
ling pests and growing root crops -
such as sweet potato, melange and
yucca as they lead hands-on, in gar-
den demonstrations throughout the
day
Gardeners wanting to reduce their
use of water will want to hear what
Kathleen Patterson of Florida Yards
and Neighborhoods has to say about
micro-irrigation.


Bill Miranda, master gardener, will
lead tours through the University of
Florida IFAS, Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences demonstration
gardens located on the grounds.
Besides the learning opportunities
offered through the seminar there
are buying opportunities, too.
Vendors will offer a variety of veg-
etable seeds and seedlings plants for
sale, plant containers, melaleuca
mulch, soil amendments, potting
mix, compost bins, fruit trees, micro-
irrigation kits, rain barrels and other
related items.

deners will also be available answer

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH







byM. E Hampton, D.D.S.
GUM TREATMENT
MAY HELP DIABETICS
Recent research has
uncovered links between gum
disease and other parts of the
body that previously may have
seemed unlikely. For instance,
periodontitis has been
associated with an increased
risk of heart disease and
stroke, which makes a good
case for addressing gum
inflammation. More i. ciii.
researchers have discovered
another potential benefit of
keeping gum disease at bay.
According to research, it has
been found that treating
periodontal disease in
diabetics may lower their
insulin levels. Researchers
suggest that the connection is
based on bacterial infections
of the mouth that cause
inflammation, which results in
chemical changes that reduce
the effectiveness of insulin
produced in the body. As a
consequence, diabetics find it
more difficult to control their
blood sugar
At the office of Mark E.
Hampton, D.D.S, we work
with our patients so they can
achieve and maintain a
beautiful smile and healthier
gums and teeth. We take the
time with our patients to
explain their treatment options
and inform them of additional
preventative care. Most adults
with gum disease are unaware
that they have it. Periodontal
disease is usually a slow,
painless, progressive disease.
You need not lose your teeth
to gum disease. If diagnosed
early, the teeth can be saved.
We're located at 11902 Illinois
Street, Dunnellon. Where we
are currently accepting new
patients. Please call 352-489-
5071 to schedule an
appointment. "We're
Dedicated to Excellent
Dentistry."
P.S. Previous research has
found that 90 percent of
patients with periodontal
disease were at risk for
developing Type 2 diabetes.

Poor Rocky is a casualty of

M a r i a ster" is friendly with
D e v i n e children and cats, is house
trained, walks nicely on a
leash and loves to go for a
jaunt about town by car.

Marion County Animal
Services at 352-671-8700.
Rocky's animal ID number
is A012146, which will help

and into your home fast, so
he won't ever need a num-

Our other featured dog is
Madison, the 2-year-old
Cairn terrier mix. This
sweet young gal was
brought in to the Animal
Center as a stray Even
though she is far from
home, she is described as
very lovable, patient and a
little shy She gets along
with other dogs and chil-
dren, so she could be great
in a multi dog household,
or with young ones about.
A smaller dog like Madison
would also be a good
choice for seniors. Like all


the dogs that are sheltered
at the Animal Center,
Madison is spayed, mi-
crochipped and current on
all shots. Life in a shelter
can be hard on a loveable
lass like Madison, so let's

In addition to calling and

out of their runs more
often and can learn to be
better pets when adopted.
For couples and friends
who don't have the time or
desire to adopt or foster a
pet in their home, but still
want to help out with ani-
mal welfare, volunteering
here may be a great choice.
You can make a commit-
ment of just how many
hours in the week or month
you have free. You can car-
pool with a group of
friends or go with your
spouse for company and
have something worth-
while to do together, as
well as giving back to your
community Also, with the
Southeast 31st Street ex-
tension almost completed,
there is now a way to get
from the southwest 200
corridor over to the east
side without going all the
way on State Road 200
through town, which many
people like to avoid. You
simply turn onto South-
west 66th Street, take it to


Southwest 27th Avenue,
turn left, then make a right
on Southwest 42nd Street
(where Trinity Catholic
High School is) and take
that all the way down to
Maricamp, when the road
is completed in the fall.
Then turn right onto Base-
line Road and you will
soon see a sign for the Ani-
mal Center. I'm sure the
Center can give you better
directions when you call.
This will shave about 15
minutes from your trip,
and it's a more leisurely
ride to boot. The exact ad-
dress of the Animal Center
is 5701 S.E. 66th Street.
Now that we've ad-
dressed our fabulous ca-
nines, it's about time we
have something for you
fabulous feline lovers, and
we do. There are five fabu-
lous kittens available and
each has a personality to

Making This Right

Beaches
Claims
Cleanup
Economic Investment
Environmental Restoration
Health and Safety
Wildlife


At~


/ am from Louisiana and I know our beaches are our home,
our way of life and our livelihood. Protecting the coast and
cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.
Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup


At BP, we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And
that includes keeping you informed.

Looking For Oil
You may have heard oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf, but our work
on the beaches continues. When oil is spotted, the Response Command
Center is notified, a Shore Cleanup Assessment Team is mobilized and
work begins immediately. Efforts are being coordinated from staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a
team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up The Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the
size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds,
and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the
Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has
been removed.

Our Responsibility
Our beach operations will continue until the last of the oil has been
skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned up,
and the region has been pronounced oil-free. We have already spent more
than $3.9 billion responding to the spill and on the cleanup, and none of
this will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not
always be perfect, but we will do everything we can to make this right.

the others are inquisitive.
All sleep with their foster
mom at night and purr to
receive kisses in the morn-

the cat post pictured here
and they continuously
romp and play with each
other. There's not enough
room in the paper for all
their individual pictures,
but I've included one who
seems to be asking to be
adopted. Their momma cat
is also available for adop-

Please give Arlene a call at
352-875-9761 to inquire
about these little bundles,
who have all been health
tested, vaccinated,
spayed/neutered, wormed
and microchipped. All they
need now is a home.
Last but not least, Feisty

about a year or so ago was
found pregnant in a Publix

that are interested in a

Celebrity Cruise planned for February


Ro g

MARION

Looks like you might
have the chance to
be a celebrity on our
Travel Committee's 14-
night southern Caribbean
cruise next Feb. 12. Hey,
that's only seven months
away, so you still have time
to plan ahead.
The deal starts off with a
round-trip ride to Fort
Lauderdale, from whence
you'll be toddled and cod-
dled along the way for vis-


its to St. Thomas, Antigua,
St, Lucia, Barbados,
Grenada, Tobago, Aruba
and Curacao islands. Your
tab will take care of all tips
as well as government and
port taxes. (You'll even re-
ceive a $75 shipboard
credit which, if it isn't lim-
ited to use in the casino, I'd
apply toward the check for
a really posh meal at the
fancy, top deck restaurant
most ships offer their well-
heeled travelers these
days.) Liz Herrick has
cruise catalog copies for
the asking, as well as all
the details you need to de-
cide on making a deposit.
There's also more to
come about a Thanksgiving
trip to Biloxi leaving on
Nov 23 and you can hear
those Singing Christmas
Trees this year on Dec. 11

Eggers. In addition to en-
joying 250 voices accompa-

highest level of Scouting is
a major accomplishment,
but Clay was just 14 when
his efforts were so re-

Troop Scribe and Histo-
rian as well as Assistant
and Senior Patrol Leader.
Clay's fellow troop mem-
bers elected him to Order
of the Arrow, the Boy
Scouts of America Honor
Society.
Clay's required Eagle
Project formed a team of
Scouts and adults to clean
up and improve the out-
door "Classroom in the
Woods" at a local elemen-
tary school which had been
badly damaged by a 2009
ice storm. In addition to
restoring the area, Clay's
group installed theatre-
style seating for students.
This young fellow is not
totally immersed in Scout-
ing, though. Clay is active
in his church youth group,
attends music studies at
the University of Arkansas
and wields a good enough
racquet to compete in
United States Tennis Asso-
ciation meets and become
a member of Fayetteville
High's JV tennis team.
Looking ahead, Clay


hopes to continue Scouting
after his 18th birthday as
an adult leader and attend
the University of Florida
on his way to becoming a


doctor. "I started my life
under the care of fine sur-
geons at Arkansas Chil-
dren's Hospital and would

chance to ask Donna or
Freeman the amazing story
behind that comment
made by a truly amazing
young man.
What goes around...
In one of these columns
published last year, I men-
tioned the great job Marion
Landing neighbor Bob
Kremer had done convert-
ing some of my old 16mm
motion picture films to
more useful CD format.
Seems a lady from On Top
of the World read the item
and called Bob about
transferring some of her
own 16mm film just as he
was about to have surgery
Bob plugged her phone
number into his computer,
promising to get back when
he could handle the job.
But, as happens too often,
the computer input was
lost and he had no way to
connect.
Bob recently told his tale
of woe to June Roberta,
who included the story
along with Bob's phone
number in her On Top of
the World column for the
July 23rd Citizen edition.


Bob tells me that very af-
ternoon brought calls from
three new prospects. But
he has yet to hear from the
lady who wanted her
16mm movies transferred
in the first place.

Paul is wondering if the
Mexicutioner was in-

the FBI's Zeb Thorpe,

By Steve Martini
Paul Madriani, San

chaser, is well positioned
for the task. Recently, he
helped avert a near nu-

naval base in Coronado.
But this feat that foiled the
plans of madmen has made
Madriani, his daughter, his
friends, and his new love
targets. A conspiracy is
afoot to put a stake through
the heart of the right-wing

actual strategy for achiev-

All I got was a fleeting
glance as fear forced my
face into the gravel, not
enough to provide a reli-
able description. Still, I
may have a name to go with
the evil eyes."
The burden of Paul's ef-
forts is to solve the murder
and crack the extremist
conspiracy But these ef-
forts put those he cares
most about in deadly situa-
tions. Martini reels his an-
tagonist into the plot with
fascinating suspense and
menace as Paul tracks his
prey to Puerto Rico and an
abandoned airfield.
Readers should enjoy


the twists and turns with
minimal problems. But
there are a few. Martini's
earlier book "Guardian of
Lies" is frequently refer-
enced, putting those of us
who haven't read it at a
slight disadvantage. And
why the author uses two
very similar names is puz-
zling. Why give us both
Thor and Thorpe?
Perhaps most frustrating
is the conclusion where we
expect but don't get loose
ends neatly tied up. It
seems the author is plan-
ning still another sequel
and will make us wait to
get full answers.

The Jews of Iquitos, Peru


JUDI'S


In one of tl
places on
the most i
in South Ame
uitos, Peru, sui
the Amazon
separated fi
cities by the v
tropical rainfo
high Andeans
this exotic se
the Sephardic
scendants of
Malta, Gibral
and the city o
ter. They cam
in 1870 esca


Semitism in their home
countries and also in
search of a better life and
fortune as they cast their
lot in with the rubber
barons who exploited the
Amazon region for the
profitable product. They
made quick fortunes as
J u d i traders, merchants, and
S i e g a I providers of services to
those who labored in the
rubber industry. Their in-
tention was not to linger
long but to make their for-
tune and move on. In time,
the small community of
he remotest the Jews in Iquitos be-
earth, once came the only other or-
solated city ganized bastion of
rica lies Iq- Judaism in Peru in addi-
rrounded by tion to Lima, the capital.
River and The early settlers built a
rom other cemetery against the in-
*ast Amazon evitable loss of life in such
)rest and the a harsh environment but
summits. In made no provisions for a
*tting dwell synagogue or school,
* Jewish de- again, because these set-
f Morocco, tlers did not believe they
ltar, Alsace would settle permanently.
)f Manches- They did register a Benev-
e originally olent Society with the
aping anti- local authorities to take


care of their indigent and
met for the High Holidays
but other than that, there
was little organized Jew-
ish life. The immigrants
married with the local
populace and by 1910,
with the decline of rubber
prices, many left the city.
The remaining remnant
continued to marry the
Christian natives but kept
the Sabbath and felt a
strong sense of Jewish
people hood and tradition
and tried to keep the frag-
ile community intact.
They made contact with
the Jewish community of
Lima during the 1950s and
were boosted in their ef-
forts when the Jewish Pe-
ruvian geologist, Alfredo
Rosenzweig, visited the
community during a trip
to the Amazon region. In
1967, Rosenzweig pub-
lished an article detailing
the economic contribu-
tions of the Iquitos com-
munity including the
importance of the great
commercial houses of
Kahn, Cohen and Israel,


among others.
Dr. Ariel Segal (no rela-
tion! Different spelling!) a
noted Israeli scholar, who
teaches at a university in
Lima, visited the region in
1995 in order to study the
Iquito community. There
was curiosity about this
group of self-proclaimed
Jews in such an isolated
region. Segal also believes
that there may be other
descendants of the early
Jewish immigrants scat-
tered around the villages
of the Amazon region.
When the majority left,
some stayed and assimi-
lated into the native cul-
ture. While they may not
be Jewish according to
strict Jewish law, the Iqui-
tos today identify with
their Jewish heritage and
try to keep Jewish cus-
toms. A spokesman for the
community proudly points
out that the people try to
keep kosher as best they
can refraining from eating
pig and turtle.
For those that wish to
live a more complete Jew-
ish life, provisions have


been made for those wish-
ing to immigrate to Israel.
Rabbi Guillermo Bron-
stein of the Conservative
congregation in Peru and
representatives of the
Jewish Agency have vis-
ited the area providing re-
sources for those wishing
to make aliyah under the
Law of Return. (A provi-
sion that allows any Jew to
become an Israeli citizen
if they are considered
Jewish under Jewish law.)
Since their Jewishness is
debated in Orthodox cir-
cles, the Iquito Jews un-
dergo Orthodox
conversion once they im-
migrate to the Jewish
State.
The Iquito descendants
of Jews bury their dead in
the Israelite cemetery,
celebrate Kabbalat Shab-
bat services,( though some
of them also attend
churches,) and speak
proudly of their Jewish
heritage even while
throwing in some Amazon
and Christian customs.
Their particular situation
of combining local cus-


toms with Judaism is sim-
ilar to other communities
such as the Bene Israel
Jews of Bombay, India.
The Iquito community
and its blending of local
and Jewish custom is a
product of isolationism, a
whole community that has
existed for almost 100
years without benefit of a
rabbi, synagogue or
school. It is a tribute to the
Jewish spirit of survival
and pride in a heritage de-
spite having little contact
with other mainstream
Jews.
Judi is a former teacher
and Jewish educator She
lives in Sun Valley with
her husband, Phil.

If the whole world were an Apple fritter who would need heaven?


Rev.
James L
Snyder


OUT To


hen a person has
reached the ripe
old age I have
reached, there are pre-
cious few pleasures left.
Actually, there are many
pleasures left but no en-
ergy to pursue them and if
I happen to catch a pleas-
ure, I can't remember
what in the world I'm sup-
posed to do with it.
One pleasure has been
by my side for more years
than I care to remember.
No matter what the cir-
cumstances I may be in at
the moment, I can always
count on this pleasure to
lift my spirits and paint a
grin on my mug. Of course,
if the Gracious Mistress of


the Parsonage catches me
with this pleasure I have
some real explaining to
do.
This is where my wife
and I paddle separate ca-
noes.
The pleasure I am refer-
ring to has created more
discussion or maybe I
should say monologues -
in our home then just
about anything else. I'm
for it and she's against it.
In all reality, her argu-
ments against it, at least in
verbiage, far outweighs
my argument for it.
When you come right
down to it is very difficult
to explain why you like
the things that you like.
My motto is, to each per-
son his own pleasure. In
this regard, we are not all
created equal.
The pleasure I am
speaking about is a lowly,
but highly delicious,
Apple Fritter. When God
created the Apple Fritter,
he sat down and said,
"Uhm, um um that's
good." And the world has
never been the same
since.
When I see an Apple
Fritter I say, "Uhm, um um
that's good."


When my wife sees an
Apple Fritter, particularly
my Apple Fritter, she says,
"How many calories are in
that?" She never refers to
it by its proper name but
simply calls it, "that."
My view on the subject
is that when something
tastes as wonderful and as
delicious as an Apple Frit-
ter there is actually no
reason to count calories.
In fact, in the pursuant of
the pleasure of eating an
Apple Fritter calories sim-
ply do not count.
Someone who did not
know me very well might
ask an obvious question,
"When eating an Apple
Fritter aren't you worried
about what your wife may
say?"
That is a perfectly rea-
sonable question. With all
the problems in the world
and all of the difficulties
and disappointments we
encounter day by day, that
would be a very good
question to ask However,
when I am in the "act" of
eating an Apple Fritter
nothing else matters in
the whole world. That is
the effect an Apple Fritter
has on Yours Truly.
I believe that is the pur-


pose of a pleasure; to help
me forget about the nasti-
ness of the world around
me.
To be honest, I must say
that my wife has one good
point about my Apple Frit-
ters. If you just look at the
ingredients of an Apple
Fritter, you could con-
clude that it is unhealthy
for a person. However,
that is looking at it from
the scientific side of
things.
I look at things from the
philosophical side. And
when I do that, I must con-
clude that the lowly Apple
Fritter has marvelous
restorative abilities. With
all the ingredients laid out
on the table I will find no
appetite for it. In fact, I
might turn my nose up in
disgust if I look just at the
ingredients.
However, put them all
together and wave a magi-
cal wand over it and voila,
you have an Apple Fritter
capable of bringing a
great deal of pleasure to
someone like me.
Normally, if someone
like me has normal mo-
ments, I keep the con-
sumption of my Apple
Fritters from my wife. And


I do this out of deep re-
spect and love for her ...
not to mention my Apple
Fritter. I know if she knew
I was eating an Apple Frit-
ter it would upset her. Not
wanting to upset my
Beloved, what she does
not know I am eating will
not hurt her or me for that
matter.
I was just thinking the
other day, if the whole
world were an Apple Frit-
ter who would need
heaven. Nothing pleas-
ures me more than in-
dulging in a freshly baked
Apple Fritter. How won-
derful it would be if this
pleasure was multiplied a
billion times around our
world.
Instead of war, or hate,
or greed, or lust, or killing,
there would simply be
Apple Fritter Time.
Everybody would indulge
in sharing the marvelous
pleasures of eating Apple
Fritters. We would sit
around caf6-like and talk
about how wonderful
Apple Fritters are. The
center of every conversa-
tion would be delighting
in Apple Fritters.
Every language on the
Earth would have some-


thing nice to say about this
delicacy. It would be the
common point of conver-
sation in every nation
under the sun.
This kind of world
would make heaven here
on earth.
But this is not the kind
of world we live in. The
apostle Paul noted this
when he wrote, "For to me
to live is Christ, and to die
is gain. But if I live in the
flesh, this is the fruit of my
labour: yet what I shall
choose I wot not For I am
in a strait betwixt two,
having a desire to depart,
and to be with Christ;
which is far better"
(Philippians 1:21-24).
No pleasure upon the
Earth, even Apple Frit-
ters, compares to what
God has in store for us in
heaven.

Choosing a caregiver can be important


^Ju June
Roberta


OTOW



S" ife is an adven-
ture, not a pack-
Li age tour" -
Eckhart Tolle
Most of us look at our
dreams and see only the
obstacles to realizing them.
Veering into the unknown
is scary, but also can be
wonderful.
Adventure doesn't need
to be jumping out of an air-
plane with a parachute on
your back. There are some
elders who do just that.
Something a bit easier can
be an adventure as well.
Taking a new class, a trip
to a new place, learning a
new skill, and anything
you've never done before
expands your horizons. It
adds a bit of excitement to
an otherwise drab day.
Adventure IS life and, as
long as we're alive, we
should live it. We're never
too old to try all sorts of
new things and ideas.
Ill health may hold us
back from some things but
there still can be some
sorts of adventures left for
us.
Mind-Body Balance
Mary Pat teaches this
class on Tuesdays and
Thursday from 9 a.m. to
9:50 a.m. A lot of the exer-
cises were Qi Gong which I
was never able to do cor-
rectly Not so in her class.


She is a great teacher. I
found it easy following her
directions. There was a
chair next to each person.
That's for beginners and
those who need to improve
their strength and balance.
The exercises help to
lower stress, stimulate cir-
culation, and calm the
mind. These classes are
only for OTOW residents.
Flightplan
This movie was shown at
Live Oak Hall. This film is
the last in the Lethal
Transportation Film Se-
ries. It stars Jodi Foster. '"A
young mother's nightmare
begins aboard a trans-At-
lantic flight when her
young daughter turns up
missing. Worse yet, no one
on the plane believes the
girl exists."
Before the movie, Dr. Pat
Wellington gave us some
information regarding it.
She told us of many bloop-
ers and holes in the plot.
Also Air Marshals, flight at-
tendants, and pilots found
many things that could
never happen on a plane.
Whatever the com-
plaints, I found the movie
thoroughly enjoyable with
suspense that never lets up
from beginning to end.
There were quite a few
surprises.
Why Choosing the Right
Caregiver is So Important
As the number of seniors
in the U.S. continues to
grow-indeed, the first
"Baby Boomers" will turn
65 in 2011-so does the
market for non-medical
senior homecare. Chances
are, you will at some point
be looking for a caregiver
for an elderly family mem-
ber. Visiting Angels is one
of the nation's leading
providers of non-medical
senior homecare, with over
170 locations nationwide.
According to John


Spang, owner of Visiting
Angels in the Circle Square
Commons area of OTOW,
"At Visiting Angels
(www.vistingangels.com),
we are dedicated to work-
ing with clients and their
families to ensure the best
possible non-medical
homecare. Nothing is bet-
ter than providing the
quality care that allows an
elderly client to stay in
their own home."
"Today's seniors wish to
maintain their independ-
ence and quality of life as
long as possible," states
John. '"At the same time,
their adult children are
often sandwiched between
taking care of their own
offspring and helping their
elderly parent, who may
live hours away. That's why
Visiting Angels non-med-
ical homecare services
have become so popular in
the Marion County and
surrounding area."
"Many seniors do not re-
quire a nurse, but simply
need the assistance Visit-
ing Angels provides help-
ing with the tasks of daily
living," continues John.
Visiting Angels' services
include, meal preparation,
basic household chores,
personal hygiene, shop-
ping, companionship and,
simply providing a respite
for family caregivers.
Due to the increased
need for such assistance,
many non-medical home-
care agencies are sprout-
ing up across the
landscape. However, not
all agencies are alike, and
it's important to under-
stand the differences. For
more information on why
Visiting Angels is the best
homecare provider for you
and your family please
contact John, Michelle,
Jane or Cam at 352-620-
8484.

United Way of Marion
County is looking with vol-
unteers who are interested

shops. Training will be pro-

Payments arrive with direct

deposit, no matter what


Adon
Williams
These days, almost
everyone gets their
benefit payment by
direct deposit. Whether
you receive Social Secu-
rity or Supplemental Se-
curity Income (SSI), you
can depend on your pay-
ment arriving in your ac-
count on time, every time.
If you don't already have
direct deposit, there are
good reasons to sign up.
For one, less money and
time spent driving to the
bank to cash your check
helps you save. Second,
fewer paper checks, en-
velopes, and stamps, and
less fuel to deliver the


SOCIAL


checks mean less waste
and pollution for the envi-
ronment.
Hurricane season is
here for some areas. Other
areas bear the brunt of
flooding. Some areas of
the nation are plagued by
tornadoes, and still others
must deal with wildfires,
severe thunderstorms, or
even earthquakes. If you
are unfortunate enough to
be in the line of a natural
disaster, the last thing you
want is for your income to
be interrupted because of
an evacuation or a missing
mailbox. With direct de-
posit, you know your pay-
ment will be in your
account on time no matter
what.
When on vacation, di-
rect deposit ensures pay-
ments will be deposited
into your account on time,
so there's no reason to

rus" of Ocala. Come down and spend a Thursday night

worry about the safety of
your benefit or to ask a
neighbor to look out for
your check when you are
away.
As an added bonus,
many banks offer free
checking accounts for
people who use direct de-
posit because it saves the
bank the cost of process-
ing paper payments. In
addition, the payment
probably will show up in
your bank account sooner
than a paper check will
appear in the mailbox ...
and there's no need to
cash it. It's already in the
bank.
Skip the line at the
bank, save money, get your
payment faster, and know
you can depend on your
payment being in the bank
no matter what. You can
do all of this with direct
deposit Learn more about
it at

County Commission streamlines


special event permit process


Traditionally, when event organiz-
ers wanted to host a community fes-
tival, fair or concert in
unincorporated Marion County, they
would need a special event permit
from Marion County government.
Special event permits (not to be con-
fused with special use permits) are
required for properties not specifi-
cally zoned to host events that last
one to seven days.
Getting that permit required ap-
plicants to obtain seven signatures
from county and state officials, in-
cluding law enforcement, fire rescue
and public health among others. The
process, which officials described as
"antiquated" and "fragmented,"
could take several weeks to complete
and required event organizers to
travel to various locations through-
out the county Now, however, that
process has changed.
In a unanimous decision on Aug. 3,
Marion County commissioners
adopted a new, streamlined process
for special event permits. Marion
County Fire Rescue Division Chief
Paul Nevels led a seven-person com-
mittee to improve the process, after
commissioners received complaints


from the community
Richard Guynn, Past-President of
the Ocala Jaycees, tested the new
process when applying for a permit
for the annual "God and Country
Day" Fourth of July event. Guynn
told commissioners that the new
process is better than ever. He said
he received his permit within five
days whereas the previous process
took a month.
Applicants can complete this
process in three simple steps:
Download and thoroughly read
the special event permit application
online at www.marioncountyfl.org.
Click on the "I Want to Tab" at the top
and select "'Apply for a Special Event
Permit." Or, fill out the application in
person by visiting the Marion County
Zoning Division (2710 E. Silver
Springs Blvd., Ocala).
Meet with a Zoning Division rep-
resentative who will guide you
through the process. When you meet,
bring all of the required documents,
e.g. site plans and written authoriza-
tion from the property owner among
other documents.
Receive confirmation from the
Zoning Division.


Using an existing software pro-
gram, Zoning Division officials will
enter your information into the sys-
tem and send it to the required re-
viewers. In short, event organizers
will no longer need to drive to vari-
ous locations to gather the signatures
required to obtain the permit. If all
goes as expected, the permit can take
as little as 72 hours to complete (de-
pending on the circumstance and
complexity). The special event per-
mit costs remain $15.

Meals on Wheels

is shy on drivers

There is a great need for volunteer
drivers at the main Meals on Wheels
site in the Ocala area.
Even one hour of time will help de-
liver meals to homebound seniors.
For more information, call Marion
County Senior Services at 620-3501,
or Julie at 620-3437.

This is an artist's rendering of the new community center in Marion Oaks.


Marion Oaks center to expand
Groundbreaking for the expansion of the Marion Oaks
Community Center took place Tuesday
Participating were Marion County MSTU/Assessment,
Marion Oaks MSTU Advisory Board and the members of
the County Commission.
Marion Oaks residents will soon have more room for
neighborhood activities. The community center annex
will be to the west of the existing community center. The
new addition will measure approximately 10,000 square
feet and is set to add an exercise room, small kitchenette,
meeting/activity rooms and computer lab. The current
community center contains an auditorium and library
With the expansion, staff will also host more youth and
adult activities and locals will be able to rent portions of
the building. The current facility is 12,000 square feet.
Great Southern Contractors of Oviedo submitted the
project-winning bid of $1,235,501.30. Staff expects con-
struction to be complete in May or June 2011. Marion
Oaks' property owners and residents will pay for the fa-
cility's construction and operating costs through Munic-
ipal Service Taxing Unit (MSTU) per parcel assessments.
